Stoner Giveaway


Forgive me whilst I revert to print for this latest post but it's time for a quick book giveaway and you don't need to hear me wittering on about that, you just need to know about the goods.

If I told you that Stoner by John Williams is one of the best novels I have read since I began this book blog over five years ago would that pique your interest?

If I could point you towards review after review that showed a similar enthusiasm would that begin to convince you?

Ok, fine, if I mentioned that Tom Hanks thinks it's bloody brilliant would that be the deal clincher?

It’s simply a novel about a guy who goes to college and becomes a teacher. But it’s one of the most fascinating things that you’ve ever come across. 

— Tom Hanks, Time Magazine


Kudos first to NYRB Classics for bringing this amazing novel back into print but plaudits too to Vintage Classics for bringing it to the UK and even more so for not only sending me a copy but also another one 'for a friend.'

We're friends, right?

So if you want to be in the running then please add your comment below or email me your details and I'll make a draw at the end of the month.

Good luck...

You had me at Tom Hanks.

Kidding. You had me at "one of the best". I always rely on your recommendations.
